We read so many good reviews on this movie so my husband I expected a lot from the all-star cast. There's many users on here that are ridiculous for saying these "kids are believable". These people do not have children. First of all 12 year olds are still kinda grossed out about the opposite sex. Secondly when they run away they are prepared with everything. Scout or not, there's no way 12 year olds have the maturity to think these things through. The 12 year old girl has more eye make-up than most adult women. We turned it off after awhile because it was so slow and the story line just doesn't do it for us. Boring and disappointing. Really glad I didn't spend the movie going to the theater on this one.
